the early volt for republicans in north carolina, colorado, and looks good for democrats in iowa, nevada and ohio. though ohio is a little trekkie to get a sense of just yet. the president up by five, six points in that state according to most polls right now. it is good the engagement is high and enthusiasm is up there. >> just make sure your voice is heard at the polls. >> stand in the line, folks. here in new york the police charged a nanny in the deaths of the two young children in her care. ortega is recovering from self-inflicted stab wound and remains in the hospital under guard. that case certainly just chilled the nation a few days back. >> just tragic. to a dramatic crash caught on camera. amazingly everyone walks away without so much as a scratch. >> unbelievable. take a look at the freight train barrelling along a railroad track in utah as a water truck tries to get across. the truck is smashed to pieces but the two men inside are not hurt at all. james wood was recording the train for his 4-year-old son when the crash took place. he said he rushed to the truck, expecting to
